Comprehensive content


More comprehensive content than any other single provider: 100+ patent authorities— 32 in full text.

A single search across multiple authorities saves you time. And because the claim(s) are uniquely available in the full text of the document, you’ll be accessing the most important part of the patent(s).

Over 60 million PDFs


PDFs are multi-page, compressed, bookmarked, and often searchable.

Speed of downloading PDFs is greatly enhanced. Storage costs are reduced. Search and highlight terms within the PDF, then copy.

Search in original language or English


You can choose to search in the language in which the patent was originally published as well as in machine-translated English.

The ability to search in English decreases the risk of missing important prior art or infringing other parties’ intellectual property.

Semantic Search


The only truly transparent, user-controlled semantic search technology specifically “trained” to recognize patent concepts.

You are in complete control of the semantic analysis, interacting with the technology to refine the concepts.

Unlimited alerts


Create two types of alerts:  By keyword, which retrieves all publications that include your keyword and reflect any kind of change; By publication number, which retrieves ONLY that specific patent document if it reflects any kind of change.

  • Monitor competitors
  • Keep up with changes in technology
  • Monitor changes to individual and multiple documents

Links to related information and tools


Access additional details about a patent directly from the patent to see when and where it has been cited and if it has been or is in litigation, or dig deeper into the patent itself to see vulnerabilities or gaps.
